SpinVox has launched a voicemail-to-text service, designed to make life easier and more productive for mobile professionals.

Using “push” technology, SpinVox automatically converts voicemail into texts, sending them instantly to mobile phones.

“We developed SpinVox in response to a need for simple, fast, hassle-free voicemail," said Christina Domecq, chief executive officer of SpinVox. “As busy professionals, frequently away from our desks, we receive a lot of voicemails. We typically walk out of a meeting, turn our phones on and get inundated with a large number of voicemail notifications.

“We then go through the laborious task of listening to each message and become frustrated because we have to replay and listen to our messages several times just to get important details.”

Domecq said the company had seen an opportunity because voicemail controls can be complex and time-consuming. The solution eliminates the need to dial in for messages, and avoids the various prompts involved in dealing with voicemail.

According to Domecq, an average business person spends 10-15 minutes a day listening to voicemail, or between three and five hours a month. On that basis, a company with 100 employees could save £150,000 in one year by using SpinVox.

John MacMillan, criminal solicitor with WMB Law, said, "I have been using SpinVox and it has been a phenomenal help while in court, allowing me to read messages I would not otherwise be able to access until after a court hearing."

A free trial of the service is on offer. Just text the word “SPINVOX” to 84004. Alternatively, sign up through the SpinVox website at www.spinvox.com, or call SpinVox on 0870 033 7300.
